How to Move Your Hips and Booty

Note from Lucille: This is a guest post from my friend, Samba Teacher and Booty Shaking Expert, Theresa Stevens. Enjoy – and please leave us your questions and comments below!

Hi there, beauties!

My name is Theresa Stevens, and I’m a Samba dancer and teacher … and a Booty-Shaking Expert. Great job title, right? :-)

I pretty much love my mission in life: helping people all over the world feel more sensual and free in their bodies … with dancing.

I truly believe that our hips are the “Pleasure Center” of our bodies!

And when you feel connected to your hips when you sit, stand, and walk, it allows you to feel effortlessly graceful – and makes you magnetically attractive to other people, too.

Many people think that women can innately move their hips with ease and grace because they were born with a certain anatomy … but dancing enables EVERYONE to shake their hips in a sexy way.

Dancing is an awesome way to overcome your male anatomy and master sexy, natural hip movements.

If you want instant proof, look to the Brazilian culture …

When I lived in Brazil, I was surprised to see more men than women out on the dance floor, moving their hips to the music and looking incredibly sexy while they danced.

Another fun thing about Brazil is that transgender people are celebrated during the festival of Carnaval. The spirit of Brazil is all about celebrating life and shaking what your momma gave you!


Let’s get to some hot Hip Dance tips!

Here’s how to get sexy movement from your hips:

1. First, you need to bend your knees and learn how to dance in what I call the African Seated Dance Position.

This is the first essential step because if you don’t bend your knees when you dance, you aren’t going to get much movement from your hips.

So bend your knees and feel like your back is sliding straight down a wall, about 6 inches. This is the position to dance in!

2. Once you are in the African Seated Dance Position, the next key move is to learn how to squeeze your hip UP on one side.

Keeping your knees bent, squeeze one hip UP on the side. Then release that hip and come back to the center African Seated Dance Position again. Then squeeze the other hip UP.

Keep going, squeezing your hips up from side to side.

The trick is to always come back to the African Seated Dance Position and keep your knees bent. That’s how you get nice, bold, sexy swinging hips that are ready to play the bass with their movement!

BEST OF ALL, practicing this movement builds a connection with your hips – helping you achieve a sexy, feminine hip sway as you walk throughout the day.

Sexy hip movements comes from engaging your core muscles and your inner thighs – and with a little playful practice, you will understand how to make these movements as subtle or audacious as you please.

It is a deliciously feminine feeling!

I would love to teach you how dance with your hips and connect with the Pleasure Center of your body with my fun dance program. It’s called the “How to Firm Your Booty Program” and I have had excellent success helping women and men all over the world learn exactly how to shake their hips and booty!

  2. I have bean learning how to move my hips tis way on my own for the past two months now and that explained it more. Even know I’m trans and the HRT over the last 2 years 8 months has changed my body tilting my pelvis more forward and widening my hips witch interns I walk feminine but that dance tip helps allot to when learning how to do it when it isn’t natural to you.

  4. This type of exercise does help a girl maintain her womanly shape and figure. My butt has always been my best ‘ass-et’ as a woman.

  5. After being on Lucille’s program I am well pleased with the fat redistribution on my but and hips. The fullness my hips feel in scrubs and pants and and the slight bounce I get when I walk which I never felt before encourage’s me to sway my hips more. The jiggle of my breasts and now my hips makes me feel even more feminine when I walk. Thank you once again for the tips.

  6. I agree with Jennifer. Once my GG friend showed me how to correct my standing and sitting posture to a feminine form, it was easy to follow the Belly Dancing routines on the DVD she has. The hip movement, in my case, is not so essential as the overall feminine presentation. When I wear a nice top and slacks with low heels and a touch of makeup, I am not obviously read, and we have fun as girls out to the movies or malling. The walking and moving gestures are just automatic after gaining the the confidence from a little training and LOT of practice!

  7. I think that everything that Theresa says is spot on. In my own experience, having a good posture is also important. I found that standing up and walking with my back straight (that is — NO slouching) is really important. I also found that placing one foot in front of the other as I walk helps my hips move in a very feminine way, too. As Theresa says– it all takes practice,practice, practice. I find that now I don’t even think consciously about how I move — it all comes naturally and effortlessly.

    • Jennifer,

      U look amazingly feminine – your face has a classic, prettiness about it to me.

      How does your face look so beard-free, as though there has never been hair growth there??


    • Exactly- I am the same way dear. There are a huge amount of genetic women that walk like men and have no clue.
